Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

8. Your Spirit, God, Moves Us to Pray

Your Spirit, God, moves us to pray
for children in the world today
whose only home may be the street,
who never have enough to eat,
who fear the night, and dread the day,
and cannot go outside to play:
Refrain:
God, bless the children, let them live.
Teach our hearts and hands to give.

Your Spirit, God, moves us to pray
for children in the world today
whose tongues must learn new ways to talk,
who cannot see or hear or walk,
who toil in shops ˜til hands are sore,
who mourn their loved ones lost in war:
Refrain

Kind, gentle God, this is our prayer:
that we might learn to love and share
the blessings that you shower down,
a loving home, a friendly town,
good food to eat, warm clothes to wear,
and when we're sick, a doctor's care:
Refrain
